Candle Mat

Getting ready for a needle-felting class, I experimented with a very small felt mat that I thought could be cut into a round piece.  The Fall Table-Runner class will focus on using fall colors and shapes to create  table-runner, place mat, or candle mat sized pieces.  I try to have a few samples on hand to illustrate the possibilities.  So, here's a candle mat that is decorated with fall leaves, acorns, and apples.  Students will be able to use cookie cutters to get the shapes just right, which is a big help if one does not feel they could do it free-hand.  It's fast and easy.
